    Quit or be fired, educators implicated in Atlanta scandal toldJuly 15, 2011 By the CNN Wire Staff The superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools has ordered that 178 educators allegedly involved in a teaching scandal resign or face termination proceedings. In a letter, Superintendent Erroll B. Davis Jr. gave them the opportunity to resign by Wednesday, said Keith Bromery, director of media relations for the schools. The letter was sent Thursday to educators listed on a report about the state Criterion-Reference Competency Tests as having confessed to or having been implicated in testing improprieties. On Monday, at a school board meeting,...

    Atlanta schools created culture of cheating, fearPublished July 16, 2011 Associated Press ATLANTA – Teachers spent nights huddled in a back room, erasing wrong answers on students' test sheets and filling in the correct bubbles. At another school, struggling students were seated next to higher-performing classmates so they could copy answers. Those and other confessions are contained in a new state report that reveals how far some Atlanta public schools went to raise test scores in the nation's largest-ever cheating scandal. Investigators concluded that nearly half the city's schools allowed the cheating to go unchecked for as long as a...

    A jilted ex-lover in Stillwater is accused of going to his former flame's home, where he killed her pet snake and wrote "I loved you" with its blood. When police arrived at the ex-girlfriend's home, Jonathan Paul Utecht, 21, was standing outside with blood on his hands and told the woman, who was with the officers, "that she did not want to go inside the apartment and see what he had done," according to a criminal complaint. Utecht was charged today with felony counts of burglary and terroristic threats. His initial court appearance will be July 28. Police were alerted...

    PITTSBURGH -- The Pennsylvania Department of Education is looking into a newly surfaced report indicating possible cheating on state standardized tests. The data forensics report examines results of the 2009 Pennsylvania System of School Assessment, or PSSA. The annual tests measure math and reading skills in students statewide. The report flags exam scores in about 35 districts, plus some charter schools. It does not assert cheating occurred, but says that certain answer patterns and erasures make the results suspicious.

    Dozens of Atlanta public school educators falsified standardized tests or failed to address such misconduct in their schools, Gov. Nathan Deal said Tuesday in unveiling the results of a state investigation that confirmed widespread cheating in the city schools dating as far back as 2001. "I think the overall conclusion was that testing and results and targets being reached became more important than actual learning for children," Deal said. "And when reaching targets became the goal, it was a goal that was pursued with no excuses." Falsifying test results made the schools appear to be performing better than they really...

Regardless of his professional future, it's Weiner's predicament at home that seems to be launching countless discussions among couples like the Austins. And this time, it's not a question of actual physical cheating — a la Eliot Spitzer and his prostitution scandal — but the murkier backdrop of Internet relationships: sexting, tweeting lewd photos, emailing.

This comes after word that there may have been voter fraud in the nonpartisan State Supreme Court election yesterday between incumbent David Prosser and JoAnne Kloppenburg.

Kisha Jones, 40, who has already been jailed for 17 months following her diabolical deed, has about two more years to spend in the clink when factoring time off for good behavior. The mother-of-five tricked her hubby's mistress Monique Hunter, 26, to take cytotec, causing early labor on October 2009. When the baby was born alive, she tried to deceive hospital workers into taking the premature newborn off the respirator. Both Hunter and her child are...

    That time-honored anti-cheating mantra, “You’re only hurting yourself,” may be literal fact, according to new research. Emerging evidence suggests students who cheat on a test are more likely to deceive themselves into thinking they earned a high grade on their own merits, setting themselves up for future academic failure. In four experiments detailed in the March Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers from the Harvard Business School and Duke University found that cheaters pay for the short-term benefits of higher scores with inflated expectations for future performance. The findings come as surveys and studies show a majority of...

While many people behave themselves at bachelor parties, oftentimes these fetes just get out of control. Friends get excited and caught up in the moment and the groom goes right along with it. ..

    ( – A Fairfax County high school last month told teachers to let cheating students retake tests so they wouldn’t receive zeros, the Washington Post reported. In a Nov. 5 e-mail to teachers, West Potomac High School Principal Cliff Hardison said cheating should "result in a disciplinary consequence separate from an academic consequence." This is the same Fairfax County high school that asked teachers to mostly banish F's from report cards, the newspaper said. According to the Washington Post, Hardison – responding to complaints from parents and teachers – later reverted to the old policy of giving zeroes to cheaters,...

    The Cost of Faking it Published on May 25, 2010 There's a saying that clothes don't make the man, but a lot of times the clothes we wear (accessories and tattoos included) do actually say something about who we are. (If you're famous, it may even happen that the clothes you don't wear say something about who you are). Besides signaling to others, clothes obviously also have an effect on how we feel about ourselves, and as a recent study shows, this sense of self that we derive from certain clothing produces measurable behavior changes. In particular, the study which...

    The admission came as his squeaky-clean image took another blow with a Las Vegas nightclub beauty emerging as the third woman to be linked to him. 'I have not been true to my values and the behaviour my family deserves,' said the 33-year-old star, who is married with two young children. While admitting 'personal sins' but not admitting to any specific infidelities, he added: 'I regret those transgressions with all of my heart.

Recently leaked e-mails from the "scientists" at CRU show that, when talking among themselves, they forthrightly admit to using a "trick" to "hide the decline" in the Earth's temperature since 1960 -- as one e-mail says.
